Surveyed by: Cemetery was surveyed by Susan Story and Ginger Ballard 1 Jun 2003.
Comments: This cemetery lies in the triangle of land in the center of this intersection. The cemetery is overgrown by poison oak and other vegetation and is in need of attention. The area enclosed by remnants of a fence would easily contain three times the number of graves identified on this visit. A revisit in winter might reveal more information.
